but the idea you privatize the veterans administration as governor romney proposed just last year is remarkable and that's what i've been traveling the country to talk about. if you believe the math, romney's program would cut $11 billion to the v.a. in year one. that treats veterans from world war ii all the way to the two wars we have been fighting for a decade. this is a time where we have to honor our commitment to make sure we have -- the troops have what they need to go to war which the president has done but also honor that sacred obligation when they come home which i'm not sure governor romney quite understands. >> there's a statement from paul ryan. i won't read it all. he says we are committed to the same 2014 transition date as the administration. we believe troop withdrawals within that time frame should be directed by the advice of commanders on the ground. what did you make of this furor today over the comments your father made about libya? basically saying that neither he nor the president had any knowledge of requests from the benghazi embassy for more security? ther
